Machinarium
« on: November 05, 2009, 09:55:24 PM »
For a light-hearted time in a cyborg, steampunk world, check out the European work "Machinarium."

http://machinarium.net/demo/

A quick play, this challenging puzzle point-and-click will keep you entertained for a few hours. It does you a lot of favors by giving hints and having a very clever "walkthrough" mechanic. It also does you a huge favor with its fantastic, atmospheric soundtrack. Though not without its frustrations, this beautiful lil' game will charm you through and through.

It goes for a low $20. Don't forget to nab the soundtrack, too.

8/10

I enjoyed the game for the 3-ish hours I played. First robot to whom I could use the word "Cute" for in a long time.

Honestly, I would not have payed $20 for the game. I was fortunate enough to get it during the Steam holiday sale along with Audiosurf, Braid and World of Goo in a package for a smooth $12.99. I do think that you can gain most of the Music from the game by going into the Game directory(read a guide on it somewhere, though not sure where).

If you guys are into Indie games, there is a great Offer one a package. You essentially pay what you want for the Games, and decide how much of what you pay goes to the Developers directly, and how much goes to Charity.
